View Full Version : Why do I hear the sound effects and score from the game in the headset?

Hi there, just bought and installed DOW2 last night for the first time. I have a Saitek 360 rumble controller and my 360 headset etc, it all works perfectly except that I think my processor is a little low (p4 3.00ghz 4gb RAM) but the one thing I am noticing at the moment, I plugged my 360 headset in and it recognised fine but I am hearing ALL the sound from my pc on it, I assume its not designed to tell the difference between a video game headset and a set of ear phones? I am basically only wanting to speak to friends on the headset and only want to hear their voices.

I guess my question is, can the above be done or is it just a case of live with it? Is the above behaviour "Normal" ??

Yea basically if you have a headset plugged in that's how you hear your sound. I'm not sure if there's a way to change it
